Isabel Handkerchief Dress Tutorial

Children's Handkerchief Dress PDF Sewing Pattern Tutorial - The Tailoress

2 3

Cut out all the pattern pieces. Cut the correct size square for your dress (option 1) or top (option 2) skirt. Cut one extra BACK and FRONT piece if you are lining the bodice.

Lining is recommended if the fabric you are using is quite heavy or if you are making the garment in one of the larger sizes. Lining will help support the waist seam.

Skip this part if you are not lining:
To line the bodice, place FRONT pieces RIGHT SIDES together. Pin and stitch the neckline and arms leaving open the shoulders and side seams. Repeat for the BACK pieces. (See image). Trim seam allowance and turn RIGHT SIDES out.

4 5

Use zig-zag stitch for all stitching required.

Create French Seams to conceal the shoulder and side seams. (If you prefer to use a regular seam please do).

Lay FRONT and BACK pieces WRONG SIDES TOGETHER. Pin and stitch a 5mm seam allowance at the shoulder and side seams.

Turn garment WRONG SIDES OUT. Pin and stitch a 1cm seam allowance to conceal the previous 5mm seam.

If you didn’t use a lining, now is the time to finish the neckline and arms. Use an elastic trim to finish the seam allowances.

Cut out the correct size elastic for the armholes and neckline (sizes on pattern). Secure in loops by folding and stitching the ends as shown in the first image.

Lay the trim RIGHT SIDES TOGETHER with the garment and pin evenly around. Zig -zag stitch in place. Then, fold the seam allowance back and top stitch again with zig-zag.

Be careful not to stretch the garment as you sew the trim on as you may distort it.

6

Fold your skirt piece in half twice.

Measure out from the folded point the required 1/4 waist measurement for your size.

Carefully snip open leaving a cut though the centre of the square of fabric.

7

Gently open out the skirt piece. You will notice at the ends of the cut the fabric wants to hang in a ‘V’ shape. These mark the CENTRE FRONT and CENTRE BACK point for the skirt.

Align the CENTRE BACK and CENTRE FRONT points to allow you to find the side seam points. Mark with pins.

Take the bodice piece. Align the side seam points together to find the CENTRE FRONT and CENTRE BACK points. Mark with pins.

Place the bodice RIGHT SIDES TOGETHER with the skirt. Match up side seams and centre points. Pin together then ease the rest around.

Stitch in place with zig zag.

Finish the seam allowance with an overlocker or zig-zag stitch.

Finish the skirt hem.

Use any method you prefer! You could use a small and tight overlocker stitch, a rolled hem or an elastic trim as described in Step 3.
